Listen, think and reflect: On the Ignite Talk

So, I watched my video #15 from the Ignite Talks from the 2012 Digital Media and Learning Conference.  The video that I watched was on a talk from Heather Braum.  I did a little research on her to find out who she is, her interests and what she does for a living and came across her web page.  She is a technology librarian at the Northeast Kansas Library System and states that she received her MLS at Emporia State University and says that she is a third generation librarian.  The video is below and I will now touch on a few points that I found interesting for different reasons.  I am going to provide the exact time points (hopefully) of the exacts moments that I would like you all to listen to.[youtube]http://youtu.be/Wbr9jh28npU[/youtube]

There are a few quotes that I found interesting; the first quote being “Libraries are much much more than books and are now the communities hubs”.  The second quote is “Through the library sutter for lifelong learning, library patrons experience computer, ebay, art, crafting, gardening and baking classes as well as, knitting, scrabble, cooking and book clubs”.   The last quote is “Throughout our lives we seek knowledge and information.  Throughout our lives we learn.  Throughout our lives we turn to our libraries to continue learning.  How is your local library doing this”?

Hello to everyone! A little about myself....I am currently majoring in Bilingual Childhood Education and I will be entering my 4th semester once the Fall semester begins. I graduated BMCC in Jan of 2011 with a degree in Liberal Arts... Everyday I try to do my best in everything and maintain a positive mind in order to move forward and fulfill my goals. Although I feel like I've been on the college path for an eternity, I've realized for me, "steady and slow wins the race" :) I love tropical places and I hate pollution! Hope to island and country hop with my family one day:) Good luck to all, in all that you do!

  1. Hey christine,
    I get what Heathers saying about the libraries in Kansas being the communities “hub,” but I don’t know if it applies to new yorkers or urban society as much. I wish that libraries still were, but at the same time I think people could just google what they want to know rather then read it for themselves- at least in our society that is.

  2. I like this lady. She is so cool and interesting as well. She seems a bit nervous and kinda shaky when she speaks but definitely a great speaker and I enjoyed her quotes and what she spoke about. Cool beans.
